What:Come join the fun at Gossett’s on Saturday July 24th.
South Salem resident and soon-to-be graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Allyson Merritt, a 2007 graduate of JJHS, was invited to bring a team of her classmates, and, using only the fresh local ingredients found at the Market that day, create delicious recipes for patrons to sample. Cheer the chefs on, and get recipes and advice from them about how to best utilize the wonderful local products offered for sale at the Market!
